While the built-in illumination on the Robotiq camera may be sufficient for many applications, I expect that others will require external lighting of some type: Backlighting, bar lights, ring lights, DOAL, etc.

With machine vision, when the camera snaps an image it usually triggers an external strobe signal that a lighting controller can use to strobe flash the external lighting in sync with the camera acquisition.  That way the lights don't have to be left on all  the time, and they can be overdriven to achieve greater brightness.  

I think it would be important for future software revisions of the Robotiq camera to be able to trigger a strobe, possibly through the UR digital outputs.  I would be interested to hear if anyone else thinks this would be important.
